Catalyst shortlist 2010

Every year, 3rd and 4th years in North Lanarkshire are invited to vote in the Catalyst Teenage Book Awards for their favourite teen novel of last twelve months.The Awards are  held in October every year, but there are book groups and author visits year round.

Catalyst has its own blog where you can find out what’s going on, including this year’s longlist (available from the LRC), reviews, competitions and interviews.

Lorna and Natasha from OLHS were also involved in the announcement of the shortlist – the three finalists who will be appearing at the awards in October.

They are…

Linda Strachan – Spider

Paul Dowswell – Auslander

Tim Bowler – Bloodchild

All three shortlisted books are available from public libraries (and OLHS after the holidays) along with the rest of the longlist. If you’ve read one of them and fancy sharing your opinion (good or bad), please leave a review on the Catalyst blog.
